    It did not.
    I've replaced the switch, and now it works properly, but it will ONLY work with a 5W bulb.

    And now it's flickering slightly. WTF.

    It's 15-220w, so presumably if I put in a 15W+ bulb it should all work?

    Anyone know what size these come up at on 19mm internal width rims? Might be interested if they'll fit my frame

    Only one lamp, no transformers. It's just a single light in one room.

    The previous dimmer I bought to replace the broken one previous to that was causing flickering, but dim function worked. I narrowed that down to a break in the live.

    Bloody frustrating. Just want lights that dim, or I would have stuck a regular switch on by now

    Can't get it to go into programming mode. Or at least there's no confirmation that it is. Or I'm not clicking it on-off in the right way...

    Yep, I've tried it with various different wattages and dimmability. Same thing, although non-dimmable bulbs flicker on rather than soft start

    Right, I'm an electrical noob but I've just replaced a dimmer switch in a room three times and every time has presented a new and interesting problem.

    Currently, I've put a programmable Varilight V-com dimmer in (1 gang) and when I switch it on, the light soft-starts up to its maximum brightness. But the dimmer function doesn't work after that.

    It has all sorts of instructions for resetting the mode, maximum brightness etc, but it doesn't do anything.

    Any ideas? Or is it fucked and need replacing?

    I'm gonna try putting it in the seat post, in line with the battery. So long as I remember to mark the seat post height when taking it out to charge every 3-4 months, should be fine.

    Only thing I'll lose is the option for on the fly trimming the rear mech, but once set, it's very rare that that needs to happen

    ^This. It took me 3 hrs to get one wall done with wallpaper solution and a scraper. Went and bought a steamer for £28 and the rest of the walls were done in 30mins

    There's one down the road from me, apparently. I've not looked into it yet, would love to print some stuff again, it's been about 15 years since I've been in a darkroom
